We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Mrs. BD thought there might be some interest in the subject of growing perennials - rather than annuals - in your containers. It's a bit late in the season to post this, but I will do so anyway, and re-post it next May, God willing.
Since it might cost $50 to pack a good-sized container with annuals, and since perennials are generally more attractive and interesting, it might be worth a try. We have occasionally been happily surprised to see perennials in containers coming back to life in Spring. The trick is overwintering them.

Nice green thumb BD, and the photo is good too. Off topic check out Irena Sendler vs Al Gore on You Tube. I still can"t believe they gave the Nobel Peace Prize to this moron.Talk about being a mommie"s boy. Now thats an award he should have won!!
Luther, I am humbled and honored, that you consider me Knight worthy, I will try my best not to disappoint you, or the millions of sheep I represent. The staff rests with you, the proper owner. A man of great wisdom, wit and intellect. Thank you for taking care of me on my quest. The manna and quail came in handy when I was hungry, but I could of used a blanket instead of laying with these smelly, flea infested sheep. I itch all over!! plus to make matters worse one of these stupid sheep ate Meta"s picture. I made sure the next day I led him, and some of friends off a cliff.I sure do hope that Helen of Troy will come back!! Again thank you for the confidence you have in me. Knight of the Crossed Ewes. - - - - - -PS What was my quest? To find wisdom, or not to do you know what with the sheep.
Modesty will do you no good Jappy. You stood strong while others fled. You protected while others projected. You were the ‘Trojan Horse’ who breached the gates in your quest for truth. You endured hardship and soft wool for the greater good. Your quest will be legend for eons. In further honor of your sacrifice of itching so bad and having your picture of Meta ravaged by those savage and beastly sheep… you have been awarded the Blog ‘Noble Quest For Truth’ prize… with its accompanying video of Meta in various poses of her always daring and funny personalities… none of which was eweish, as you well know. So carry on, you Knight of the Crossed Ewes… onward and upwind with your charges, your quest - simple truth. ... and because downwind sucks
